Biography
He was born in Naples in 1970. His first full-length feature, One Man Up, was selected at the 2001 Venice Film Festival, achieved three nominations for the David di Donatello Awards (the Italian Academy Awards) and won the Nastro d’Argento (the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists Awards) for Best First Time Director. In 2004, he directed The Consequences of Love, selected in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival and acclaimed by both Italian and international critics. The film won many important Italian awards, including five David di Donatello awards: for Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actor and Cinematography. Three years later, his third film, The Family Friend, was also selected in Competition at Cannes. In 2008, another collaboration with Toni Servillo, Il Divo, became his third film to be selected in Competition at Cannes, winning the Jury Prize. The film was nominated for Best Make-Up at the Academy Awards and won seven David di Donatello, five Ciak d’Oro and five Nastri d’Argento awards. In 2010, he published his first novel, Hanno tutti ragione, which was warmly received by both critics and public and was short-listed for the Premio Strega, the most prestigious Italian literature award. This Must Be The Place, Sorrentino’s first English language feature, marks his fourth film in Competition at Cannes.

Paolo Sorrentino

Princess Uzza / Paolo Sorrentino

Three minutes each, to portray the city of Naples: this is the starting point for a collective film made by twenty-four directors. The multi-faceted portrait of a metropolis in which tradition and the avant-garde, superstition and cosmopolitanismlive side by side. The directors were inspired by the people, the places and the atmosphere of a city which seems to have lost itself between opposing poles, multiple identities and irredeemable complexity
